    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    Yes, yes I have purchased another trailer (purchased on September 5th, 2019). :whistle: This trailer was listed locally about 15 miles from my home and I just couldn't say no to it for the price and condition. It is an M116A2 chassis with a Power Plant AN/MJQ-33 body sporting two 3KW MEP-701A...

    Master Cylinder Differences for M101 Surge Brakes

    I wanted to discuss a minor difference between a older style master cylinder (probably original) off my 1997 Pribbs M101A3 trailer. First, a side-by-side comparison. The new one is (obviously) the shiny silver, which is the "marine" (wet environment) finish: Part Number: 10614-M...

    Valence's 1997 Pribbs M101A3

    Well, I sold my 1968 M101A1 and, in favor of the surge brakes, bought this 1997 Pribbs M101A3 from Gunzy! Obviously from the stenciling it places it as a former USMC trailer. It hardly has been used too, but not surprisingly the surge shock is bad and the master cylinder was dry and...

    Picture upload problems are back

    Using the Advanced -> Manage Attachments to upload photos is back to being problematic. If I select more than one photo to upload the attachment manager spins for ~20 seconds and then nothing. No photos uploaded. I have to select and upload each photo One. At. A. Time. That's overly tedious. I...

    MSA MCU-2/P Gas Mask - What Voice Amplifier/Microphone is Used?

    I have what I believe is an MSA MCU-2/P gas mask as pictured below. Its lens is yellowed from age, but it has a 2-pin connector for what I also believe is a microphone? I've done a lot of searching and found some less than helpful videos of people talking about the mask and even a voice emitter...

    Deadly crash with 6x6 on SR193 in Clearfield, UT, USA - 10/15/2018

    Rules when posting a Classified Want Ad with possible items for trade

    I want to post a Want Ad for an item. Am I allowed, in the same post, to list items I have that I'd also be willing to trade (or partial trade) for said item, or do I need to create a Classifieds For Sale post first and then link to it?

    Premium Membership and ads

    Does a Premium SteelSoldiers membership remove the banners and advertising on the site, or do certain ads remain regardless? I'm not referring to the Classifieds. The "Upgrade" section is short on information. It only says: "Premium Membership - Grants user access to the classifieds forum...

    Leaving an add up when all items are sold

    Is it permissible to leave a classified ad up, even if all items are sold, just until the buyer receives the item(s)? That way if there are any questions/disputes with items received, the seller can point the pictures in the thread? Or is this desired to be handled differently?

    Photo upload issues are back

    I used to be able to select 3, 6, or even all 20 photos all at once and upload them. Now, sometimes if select more than one photo at a time nothing gets uploaded. Similar to what occurred previously the upload manager will "spin" and then stop and nothing will be uploaded. Unfortunately it...

    Valence's 1972 M35A2

    I've resisted creating the usual, "everything I've done to my deuce thread", as I prefer each topic to have its own thread (more or less). It is my opinion that doing so it more useful to others who may be interested that particular item and it helps keep the thread more focused and on topic...
